Instead of starting to shape tonight, I decided to clean up the rough saw marks made by cutting out the handle.
That’ll be it for tonight. Somehow I came up lacking in the energy department.
There was some question about “purity” somewhere or other, or in other words, “would I have used a scrollsaw or bandsaw to make this if I had one?” Well, yeah, probably. Remember that Disston wasn’t shy about using machinery to make all of those beautiful early 1900s saws. They weren’t stupid, and they sure had room for some bandsaws.
